Presentation Transcript

• 7. Calculating Returns and Deviations Based on the following information, calculate the expected return and standard deviation for the two stocks. Find covariance and correlation between the two stocks.

• AB= 0.9953

• 10.Returns and Deviations Consider the following information:

• a. Your portfolio is invested 30 percent in A and C, and 40 percent

• in B. What is the portfolio expected return?

• b. What is the variance of this portfolio? The standard deviation?

• E(kP)= 0.08765

• 2P = 0.008338

• P = 0.091

• 30. Portfolio Returns and Deviations Given the following information on a portfolio of three stocks:

• a. If your portfolio is invested 30 percent in A and B and 40 percent

• in C, what is the portfolio expected return? The variance? The

• standard deviation?

• b. If the expected T-bill rate is 5.25 percent, what is the expected risk

• c. If the expected inflation rate is 5 percent, what is the expected real

• return on the portfolio? What is the expected real risk premium on

• the portfolio?

• Answer: a) expected return=0.1875 standard deviation=0.2426

• c)portfolio expected real return=0.13095 real premium=0.12857

• 32. Analyzing a Portfolio You have \$100,000 to invest in either

• Stock D, Stock F, or a risk-free asset. You must invest all of your

• money. Your goal is to create a portfolio that has an expected

• return of 10 percent and is only 60 percent as risky as the overall

• market. If D has an expected return of 20 percent and a beta of

• 1.5, F has an expected return of 15 percent and a beta of 1.15 and

• the risk-free rate is 5 percent, how much money will you invest in F?

• Answer: \$66,667 investment in F

• 33. Systematic versus Unsystematic Risk Given the following information on stocks A and B:

• The market risk premium is 8 percent and the risk-free rate is 6 percent. Which stock has the most systematic risk? Which one has the most unsystematic risk? Which stock is “riskier”? Explain.

• Answer: A has more systematic risk

• B has more unsystematic risk
